The Princess and the Foal by Stacy Gregg

reviewed by Christen Schonberger, Room 2, Green Bay Primary

This is the story of Princess Haya of Jordan who brings up a horse and follows her dream. When Princess Haya is three yerars old,  tragedy strikes her family and she is given a foal to help her over her grief.

I really like this book. I think it’s amazing how a girl who is very little can ride a horse and get a horse that is just born for her birthday and grow up to ride the horse in an important cup event.

I also really like the cover and the other pictures. The picture of her jumping over a car is cool. I nearly cried when the princess was separated from the horse while being at boarding school.

The book really made me think, whether I would like to train as hard as this girl does.  The only thing I think the author could have done better is to let the loosing team perform a bit better in the cup, or at least one of them. But other than that it was great!
